My Halloween Costume

My Halloween Costume
Originally uploaded by adamb0mb.
What do you get when you mix a big cardboard box, some wrapping paper, a mile of packing tape, and a dork together? Something really cool (most of the time). Well... I got this Halloween costume.
It took two or three hours to build, but it was well worth it. Except I didn't start it until an hour before the Halloween party I was suppose to go to started. So, I missed that... but went to another party instead.
Lessons Learned:
Budget more time for costume creation.
smaller costumes for easier transportation.
smaller costume for less awkward movement.

You like what you see?

Does what I do sound like fun? I know being a database administrator doesn't sound like all that much fun sometimes... but its probably the most adrenaline filled occupation you can get with a computer science degree.

Well, guess what? My manager is hiring 3 people into our group. You could have the distinct pleasure of working with me! Guess what? They're all entry level positions. The focus is on SQL Server, because we have tons of SQL Server databases. But its impossible to be at Boeing and not at least use some Oracle (and especially in my group... we've got some Oracle Ninjas).

Apply Here!

No, I can't help you get the job. As much as I wish I did... I don't that kind of power.

-- UPDATE 10-13-2005 --
Looks like we're done accepting applications! Thanks for applying everyone.

Coolness outside of Boeing

My roommate is an artist. He does lots of concert posters and stuff for bands and clubs around Seattle. A poster he did just got "Poster of the Week" on You should check it out... its pretty sweet.

Part Two of QTD2

The 777 Flight Test Journal posted the second part of their article about the QTD2 test. Give it a read.

Oddly Familiar

I don't know if you've seen today's Dilbert (10/02/2005)... but I definitely know how Ted feels.
